Fun Stuff:

Incredibly interesting: this is your brain on fiction.

This is an amazing photo of the Milky Way above a monsoon storm.

Free, customized "Go Away I'm Reading" bookcovers for Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Twilight, etc. I want the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Hunger Games ones!

Jason Russell, one of the brain behind Invisible Children's "KONY 2012" campaign was caught naked and masturbating in public. Go ahead and say it: Bony 2012!

Coinciding with Russell's news, people in Uganda are not happy with the way IC is presenting their situation. This is a reaction video from Ugandans about the KONY 2012 movement.

TUMBLR OF THE WEEK: Trolling Chris Brown.

Did you know your own ISP is going to be spying on your internet activities come June? Trufax, people. This is our government at work. 

The 15 Best Lines from 50 Shades of Grey. My favorite: "My inner goddess is doing the merengue with some salsa moves." WTF?

This is the (amazing) story of how a trained dog is keeping a three-year old girl alive, day-to-day.

This is a cool site that lets you explore in detail, famous journeys. Options for travel information include rel journeys (Magellan, Amelia Earhart) as well as literary ones (Pequod from Moby Dick, Jack Kerouac's On The Road, etc.)

Want to know what a black hole sounds like? Well, here you go. There are also whalesounds, stormsounds, and dinosaursounds. The internet is fun!

Sales for HBO's first season DVD set of Game of Thrones has broken records. 350,000 in a week; that's more than Sex and the City, the Sopranos and True Blood!

Shadow and Bone is a Russian-inspired fantasy due out this year (that I LOVED - review out in May!) and the author has posted a video of images that inspired her novel.

25 Kick-Ass TV Heroines. (Go Daenerys and Deb!)

One of my favorite authors, Gail Carriger, has revealed the ARC cover for the first book in her newest Finishing School series, Etiquette and Espionage.

These Game of Thrones posters for season two are gorgeous.

Cracked Weekly Roundup:


  1. So much goodness! That map-y thing -- divine -- and I didn't know Carriger has a new series coming -- hooray!! Also, Bony 2012 made me spew coffee all over my desk -- that's for giving me a laugh/mess this morning! ;)

    1. I probably spent at least an hour with the map-y thing. I loved On The Road as a teen so it's fun to see the actual roadtrip mapped out!

      And you're welcome. :D I thought it was funny too ^_^

  2. I don't think I've ever told you that I really enjoy these round up posts of yours, but I do, they're ace!
